where the entires?

Location: Columbus, Ohio

Well I started on my politics entry, but I was spending way too much time doing a buncha renaming of files and junk for my little blue friend so I really didn't get it done.

Anyway, in lieu of that, here's a music survey that I stole from ruxxell who stole it from... who stole it from....

1. Favorite Album Cover Art?
Shew... um, the Dwarves - Blood, Guts, and Pussy album most likely. I also really liked the "original" jacket art for Guns N' Roses' Appetite For Destruction that was eventually relegated to the inner sleeve due to it's graphic nature.

2. What albums(s) do you own in more than one format?
I sold a good deal of my legitimate collection before I hit the road last year.

3. Analog or Digital?
Definitely digital.

5. What albums of your parents did you borrow or steal?
When I was a kid there were these boxes containing quite literally hundreds of records that belonged to my dad and his brothers that were stored away in the attic. A good deal of my music fascination and early education were the result of these records. Hendrix, Stones, Beatles, Sex Pistols, Motown, James Brown, Arthea Franklin.
I would spend hours and entire weekends sifting through these records and listening to them as a kid.

6. Secret guilty pleasure album?
There are no guilty pleasures. Anything you like is valid. People might be surprised that I've owned/enjoyed albums like Debbie Gibson's Out of the Blue, Michale Jackson's Thriller and have a deep affection for The Offspring.

7. Favorite movie soundtrack?
Jesus Christ Superstar. The Deliverance soundtrack is a lot of fun, too.

8. Favorite compilation album?
Probably Guitarrorists put out by No. 6 Records. Mmmm and The Beat Generation by Rhino. For series comps, Amphetamine Reptile's Dope, Guns, and Fucking in the Streets series.
